[Pop-Shove-it Underflip]

Submitted by Roboman on Wed, 2006-02-01 20:24.

The Pop-Shovit Underflip is a rare and peculiar trick, but it looks sick and
perfect for a game of S.K.A.T.E. To try this trick, you must be very, very
good at pop-shovits. Impossibles and 360flips may also help.

1: The success of this trick is all in your stance. Place your back foot on
the tail with your toes hanging over the edge. The ball of your foot should
still be firm on the board, but the entire toe section of your shoe should
be off. The position of your front foot doesn't matter, it's not really used
in this trick. Also have most of your weight over your front foot.

2: Jumping high from your front foot, pop the pop-shovit, with your back
foot still in the toe-hanging position. The pop-shovit should be very
vertical. This will make it easier to get your back toes under the board.

3: As the board raises and spins, keep contact with the board with the side
of your big toe.
Rather than slapping the tail and lifting your foot away, lift your back
foot straight up and "through" the board, so your toes will flip it on the
way up. Be gentle, dont kick it, flick it.

4: Once the board is just completing its spin, your toes should still be
touching the board, although now they are just underneath it. Continue to
pull your back foot upward now to start the "underflip". Don't kick forward
or out, just continue pulling your foot up.

5: If done correctly the board will now flip, so fast that people will
struggle to see what trick youve just pulled off. Catching the board is
easy, both feet are above the board and ready to land and the board will
(hopefully) seem to suck up to your feet.

6: Land solid, ride away clean, and think about how good this trick feels.

If you cant get your toes under the board, make your popshovits more
vertical.
If that doesnt work, hang more of your backfoot over the edge.
If you can start the flip but dont have enough time in the air, jump higher
(very high) and bring your backfoot up faster.
If you end up launching the board in the air with the flip, you may be
kicking forward too much.
If the board keeps spinning further than a 180, stomp your back foot more
rather than scooping it.

Have fun,
Roboman

dude, I kno. that's a beasty trick, my friend Manuel can shove underflip he got 'em by accident so its kinda funny. but he's never done an impossible in his life, but its ironic because he learned them while trying to learn impossibles. Now he's trying to pop-shove underflip over this three set at our park. we're gonna get it on film and put it in a video.

hoof Says:
So techy to watch so easy to execute like the height of it as well Kudos
ryce Says:
I learned that to do these, you have to have a good amount of height.
I read this trick tip and did it outside. Took me awhile, but I did land it. Funny to say that I learned a trick from the internet, but yeah! Thanks!

This really does help. The toes hanging off does matter...it's perfect.

Good luck doing a shove it underflip. And if it doesn't say, Roboman said 360 pop shoves and impossibles would help.
